It all started with GATES OF HELL Darkness had come to Earth following an alien invasion. A mutant strain of Earthlings had to be destroyed once the aliens were conquered. Personal freedoms existed only in legend, but some brave Earthlings rebelled at the constraints. Usually, results of defying the Federation's rulers were dire...but some survived and thrived.
Actually, the beginning came earlier, in TOPAZ DREAM, even though that story followed the original several years later. These two books are available in print, in A SHINING FUTURE.
In 2011 Ellora's Cave will be releasing the Pleasure Partners, seven BDSM futuristic stories about Earthling exiles who find forbidden lust and love in a faraway galaxy...on a pleasure planet called Obsidion where nothing is forbidden, every sensation magnified. And on Luna Ten, the utopian planet founded by the hero of GATES OF HELL.
The first of the Pleasure Partners, HIS PLEASURE MISTRESS, matches Star, an alien pleasure-giver, and her eunuch sex slave with what started as a sensual holiday lustfest for an Earthling Star Command pilot during a stop for repairs on Obsidion. When the pilot returns to the Pleasure Planet two years later, he finds the pull toward Star irresistible and returns to her--only to discover they are linked by more than mutual lust.
All of the above books are or soon will be available from Ellora's Cave.
Incidentally, there is another prequel, available from Changeling Press as a single-title digital novella, BRANDED, or in ALL WRAPPED UP, a print anthology including novellas by Dakota Cassidy, Kate Hill and NY Times Bestseller Angela Knight.
